Located in Gillespie County Fredericksburg was founded in 1846 by germans who settled here and named it after Prince Frederick of Prussia. Fredericksburg, as well as New Braunfels and most of all Gruene, has many typical German characteristics. Lot of antiques shops, some really interesting and selling at very good prices, peaches sellers and restaurants offering German style sausages. Don't... More

Great little town to shop. The shop personnel seemed very welcoming, clever merchandise, good hours. We went to Silver Creek Grill & Bar - EXCELLENT, great service, owner greeted us at our table, wonderful drinks, very unusual, and well done, and the food was awesome. It was raining, and the party continued at the grill for hours. Couldn't have been... More

Fredericksburg is a German town and it's Main Street is filled with Novelty shops, Museums and great restaurants. We were only driving through and we decided to visit two other times.

This is so fun to shop and sip wine along the way. You can always find something that interest you. I've been several times this summer. Never turn down a trip to Fredericksburg. Nice restrooms in several stores and located in town too. You'll love this place lots of food to choose from too. Have fun take your friends too,

My Husband and I drove from Magnolia TX for just to check out the place because we wanted to see what accommodations would be the best for us for Christmas this year. After driving through this lovely town we spotted a inn that wasn't on our radar for places to stay. We got a last minute room at an affordable... More

Many types of shops and restaurants to visit. Something for everyone. Prepare to slow down from big city pace and leisurely make your way through the day.

excellent and very friendly ppl. stores were nice to window shop, bought a couple of cute stuff. :-) prices very reasonable. but overall not very much, can pretty much cover it all in half a day! unless your really looking for some antique stuff but if your just strolling around you can pretty much cover it pretty quick.

Main Street is where we spend our time when in Fredericksburg. We always enjoy walking up and down the street, popping in and out of the shops and of course visiting the handful of wineries along the strip. There are also a handful of great restaurants as well.

We didn't realize we needed more than one day to spend in downtown! You can keep yourself entertained with food, shopping, wine, and time with friends and family. Definitely spend some time in downtown Fredericksburg!
